2014 in Review: The Good, The Bad, The WTH?

2014 has been one heck of a year, to put it mildly. We’ve laughed, cried, and been furious and vastly disappointed. There has been good music, and there has been awful music. We’ve gained biases (oh, Ahn Jae-hyun, Lee Jong-suk and Kim Woo-bin)(and Park ChanYeol and Song JaeRim), and perhaps even written some off for … Continue reading

Nobody is Copying Your Precious Bias, so “Kindly” Take That Stick Out of Your Butt

I recently went on a mini-rant on twitter regarding the behavior of some k-pop “fans.” “I do not understand the logic of some people. So, rookie band Say Yes is copying CNB, because of their sound?  Last I checked, pop-rock was a genre, not a CNB-specific type of rock. If that’s the case, every artist … Continue reading
